Although not everyone in Spain are unaware of this renewable energy. According to a report of the Association Cluster da Xeotermia Galega reveals that the potential for introduction of Galicia is six times higher than in the rest of Spain. In fact, since 2006 the number of geothermal pumps installed in Galicia has multiplied by 24, going from barely 20 to the nearly 500 current, which is at the same time 35% of the facilities of the entire Spanish territory. No doubt the geothermal energy is an investment, but this amortised before age 10. We will not hide a reality. Using geothermal energy generation is much more expensive than placing a boiler. The perforations are priced by the difficulties of drilling, insert a probe, fill with special mortar etc. It is as if the gas charged once the cost of the pipeline to a House.
But the reality is that these holes will provide, on an installation perfectly designed, 75 percent of the energy that will require housing throughout his life, and the price will be fixed because it pays the initial day. An alternative that raises the illustrious College of geologists, faced with this reality of this natural energy source wasted, is that public administrations should promote geothermal energy for their economic viability, since it pays for itself alone, and has sample plans in this field in Sweden and Germany. Olimpia Splendid of Geolo is a clear example of geothermal heat pump, which uses the energy present in the water and subsoil due to present in the ground geothermal heat exchangers. For each kw consumed, Geolo produces up to 5kw of thermal energy. This means that up to 80% of the energy is clean, renewable and free. Us from the Blog of air conditioning, we invite you to know this renewable energy source not only by energy saving and all the benefits that entails but by the respectful that this is energy with the environment. Also let’s not forget the new Plan for 2011-2020 renewable energy, whose objective is to achieve, as it indicates the directive 2009/28/EC, that by the year 2020 unless el20% of gross final consumption of energy in Spain comes from the exploitation of renewable sources.
